Learn how you can implement a restorative justice process for your student conduct program.
Student conduct programs often struggle to balance compliance with and other laws while still focusing on student development at the same time. Many institutions are moving toward restorative justice programs and are seeing greater student growth and less recidivism.
This archived webcast will show you how you can implement a restorative justice process for your student conduct program. You will learn the philosophies, goals, and processes of restorative justice, as well as several models that can be implemented on your campus.

CSAOs, directors of student judicial affairs, student conduct and student conflict resolution programs, resident directors, area directors, and directors of residence life that have little or no understanding of restorative justice concepts and principles will benefit from this program.

Session II will focus on:
CSAOs, directors of student judicial affairs, student conduct and student conflict resolution programs, resident directors, area directors, and directors of residence life will benefit from this "how to" program.
